A late 80's compilation of some of the greatest work ever recorded by Ted Taylor – done as a string of sessions in Chicago, New York, and Nashville for Okeh
Records. Taylor's a singer with a wonderful voice – one that was more famously tuned towards bluesier work later in his career, but which is hear heard coming off an initial run in doo wop – in a mix of modes that includes both Chicago and southern soul styles! Production is by Carl Davis, Billy Sherrill, and others – and no matter what the setting Taylor's vocals are incredible – crackling with a sense of emotion and soul that made him one of the singers to match at the time, even if his Okeh
years never yielded that many hits. 18 songs in all, including "Since You're Home", "Be Ever Wonderful", "Hold Me Tight", "She's A Winner", "That Happy Day", "Someday (I Know, I Know", "My Darling", "If It Wasn't For You", "Top Of The World", "Somebody's Always Trying", "Try Me Again", "It Ain't Like That No More", "You've Been Crying", "Dancing Annie", "So Hard", "You Give Me Nothing To Go On", "Can't Take No More", and "Long Distance Love".
